ECT - Eddy Current Service Technician - Eddy Current testing is a powerful addition to visual cylinder inspection however many in the industry continue to use such devices on the wrong cylinders or fail to operate the equipment properly.

Attendants are required to be certified by PSI/PCI as Visual Cylinder Inspectors and participants receive certification as Eddy Current Service Technician upon course completion.

The course is suited for those new to eddy current testing and to those who need to be certified to conduct the tests as required by the US DOT as of January 1, 2007.

Topics of discussion are valuable for those who have been inspecting without formal training through its wide range of inspection subjects including damage limits, neck cracking, and laws affecting inspectors.
